In case there was any doubt, the Boston Herald’s Jeff Horrigan was able to confirm that the Red Sox will go after Roger Clemens once again if he decides to pitch. Horrigan had an email exchange with team owner John W. Henry.
The Rocket is playing it coy once again, first holding off on deciding whether he’ll even play. To most, it would be a surprise if he didn’t. The media seems to believe that the Yankees are the favorite, but New York does have a lot of newspapers. While the Clemens thing is getting old, that doesn’t mean the Astros don’t need him.
